A Croatia luxury yacht charter will allow you to enjoy some of the best waters on the Eastern Mediterranean. A big rival to Greece for as a yacht charter destination, you will find that Croatia's Adriatic Sea has much to offer, from Pula to Dubrovnik.
On your sailing yacht or motor yacht you can explore the Dalmatian coast and islands, either mooring at the well equipped ACI Marina chain, or anchoring in a quiet cove. For those who like to dance the night away, the Dalmatian Island of Hvar and coastal cities and towns like Split, Zadar and Tisno have world class DJs playing through the summer. With these and many others, Croatia is a major rival to the Balearic Islands as a yacht charter destination!
If something quieter is more your bag, visit Krka National Park, accessible even on a larger luxury yacht up the river from Sibenik. Half a day’s sail from there is the epic Kornati Island National Park with its highly Instagrammable coastline.
For those who want a taste of history (Split was home to Roman Emperor Diocletian in his retirement) then the Old Towns of Spit, nearby Trogir, Sibenik (the oldest city in Croatia) and of course the seat of the Ragusan Empire, Dubrovnik are all important draws.
A private yacht charter Croatia will allow you to enjoy all that’s on offer ashore with the added luxury of crew taking care of your every wish. The skipper and crew will see to it that your every need will be catered to, from special requests for food to picnics ashore, and even events aboard such as a silent disco or casino night. On larger vessels a team will look after the water toys for you to enjoy while at anchor, whether having a blast around the bay or scuba diving on a wreck.
Though you will often have to have a sailing license for a larger vessel, a bareboat luxury yacht charter will give you complete freedom and privacy to do what you want. This will often come in a 3-cabin owner's layout with en suite heads in all the staterooms, an AC generator and all the comforts of home as you captain your own ship on this 48ft+ monohull or catamaran.
A skippered yacht charter can range from a 45ft+ sailing yacht or a 46ft+ catamaran. The skipper aboard will look after the sailing and make suggestions as to your next destinations, with you playing as much or as little a role in getting from A-B as you want. It is customary to pay a tip at the end of the trip, on top of the €100-€150 a day fee for the skipper you pay as well as the basic charter fee.
A crewed yacht charter could mean a 60ft yacht with skipper and crew, but could also mean a superyacht or crewed charter with a team of people looking after your every need. As well as sailing the vessel up the Croatian coast, they will cook, look after the housekeeping and water toys, and provide you with the service you expect at the top end of yacht charter holiday experiences.
Ranging from a 50ft luxury charter yacht to a 104ft schooner rigged gulet, a luxury sailing yacht charter can mean a variety of things. Coming bareboat, skippered or fully crewed, there is a sailing yacht to suit almost every budget.
Ranging from 46ft to over 100ft LOA, you can charter a luxury power catamaran or sailing catamaran with crew or bareboat. They are faster, more stable and thanks to the wide beam, far more spacious than monohulls of a similar size. Thanks to having a lower draft, they can also get closer in shore should you want!
Again with skipper, crew or bareboat; a luxury motor yacht charter can range in size from 50ft right up to 150 metres plus. Quicker, less dependent on the wind, and often with water toys aboard, a luxury motor yacht charter is one of relaxation and fun with the added thrill of a speed as you island hop at 30 knots!
The sky’s the limit on a superyacht charter holiday. Coming as sailing yachts and motor yachts, expect to have almost everything you want catered to by expert crew who will sail the vessel look after your every need.
Croatia has a wide array of things to enjoy. Inhabited for thousands of years, the Dragon’s Eye lake near Rogoznica was even mentioned in Greek mythology. Today you can visit ruins from ancient times that are at least as good as anywhere on the Eastern Mediterranean.
The beaches on the Dalmatian islands and Croatian coast are among the best in the world too. For those who seek sun, sea, sand and nightlife fun, there is a large number of world class nightclubs to rival the Balearic Islands.
For those who enjoy the French Riviera, the northern Adriatic will be a draw too. Towns like Rovinj, Pula and Opatija are copmparable to St Tropez, only with a distinctively Croatian style of their own.
With the turquoise Adriatic Sea is home to a host of marine life, and a visit to one of the national parks will always be a treat. Krka National Park’s waterfalls are very popular, as is Mljet National Park on the Dalmatian island of Mljet. You will find solitude if you want and the crew will drop anchor away from the hustle and bustle if this is what you want, just to enjoy your own private view.
This is highly dependent on what you want from a Croatia yacht charter. You could spend the nights sailing between islands and waking up at a new destination every day. Go shopping at hideaway boutiques and enjoy fine dining at the best restaurants in the evening.
You could choose a quieter trip, perhaps helping sail the yacht between destinations during the day and anchoring off quiet bays while enjoying the service aboard from your crew. With such variety of destinations in Croatian waters, an East Mediterranean sailing holiday can be almost whatever you want it to be.
What do you want to do on your luxury yacht charter Croatia? You could cruise the Croatian coast to towns that resemble the French Riviera, hit nightspots as good as the Balearic Islands, or just relax on a deserted beach with the crew handling your every need.
On a crewed yacht charter you could arrange to wake up in a new town every morning, and go exploring inland to see the sights. Where it comes to your Croatia yacht charter the choice is down to you.

The main types of boats that people hire on a luxury yacht charter are Sailing Yachts, Motor Yachts, Sailing Catamarans, Power Catamarans, Gulets, Superyachts (21 metres plus boats) and Megayachts (40 metres plus boats).
Your first step is to decide how many guests you will have onboard, your location preference and your desired dates. Once you have decided on the basics you can speak to a yacht broker who will organise a detailed itinerary based on where you are travelling and your preferences.
Wherever your imagination takes you, there are yachts berthed in popular locations such as The Bahamas, Maldives, New England, the Mediterranean and the South Pacific. But you can also take you on farther afield excursions such as Antarctica, the South Pacific and the wilds of Alaska, it just depends on what type of sailing holiday you want to do.
Yes, all charter companies will require a deposit to book a yacht. This is often refundable if you make cancellations or changes over ninety days in advance. But read the cancellation policy and consider trip insurance if booking inside the cancellation window.
Your party size determines the size of luxury yacht to book, so get a headcount before you look. You may also wish to explore the locality before transferring back home. The main points to consider are what is your budget, have you got the necessary sailing experience and qualifications to manage the boat if it's not going to have a skipper, whom you are taking sailing, where exactly you wish to go and what will the weather be like on the proposed dates of your trip.
Your charter rate will include the hire of your luxury yacht and its equipment, together with the services of its captain and all crew. The vessel will be properly insured against all marine risks. Additional fees not covered in the charter rate include: VAT, marina fees, local taxes, harbour fees, canal fees, fuel charges, electronic communications, provisioning and any other bespoke extras required. If you choose to embark at a different port to the yacht's home location, then you can expect to pay for delivery and/or return fees and expenses.
Luxury yachts are generally charted at a minimum for one week. You can typically charter a yacht for as long as you want, the only limiting factor is generally the yacht's availability.
